How to Bring Fabulous Celebrity Inspired Events to Your Michiana Wedding

Written by Angie Anderson of Belle Behind the Ball

I recently attended a symposium with David Tutera in Bermuda (Yes, THE David Tutera!) And now I am bringing the FAB back to all of you! How can you have celebrity inspired looks with a modest midwestern budget? Hint… I am going to tell you!

Experience Matters! The one thing I have noticed (and been blown away by) with all Tutera events, he always plans to WOW the Guests. You can tell he truly cares about their experience! Whether it be a live musical serenade or a visual WOW (like a lady in a 10’ tall martini glass greeting you at the door). You don’t need to spend a bunch of money, you just need to consider your guests and plan to WOW them at just the right moment to make the most impact! Maybe consider asking a ballet group to perform while guests are enjoying dinner!  Or a local artist to serenade during cocktail hour.

Mix inexpensive items in with more high-end décor! You can totally get away with mixing budget friendly décor when you have a setting that looks “expensive.” For instance, these are very inexpensive paper flowers, but when mixed with the table settings (and that VIEW!), you cannot even tell!

Lighting! This can be a small cost item that makes a very big impact! Here, we have one event at two different times of the day. See how much lighting changes things?  

Finally, Location! Think out of the box for a truly amazing and unique experience! At one event, we were at an abandoned church in Bermuda. By itself, it isn’t much, it didn’t even have a roof! But transformed with lighting, a few flowers hanging overhead and talented entertainment, this venue completely swept us all away!
